"A part of Kylie wanted to push the letter back across the desk."

"The sound of twigs being crushed underfoot told Kylie her com-pany stood behind her."

"What are you doing here?"

"Nothing is bad," Kylie answered Derek, and desperately tried not to emit any hormones or emotions that might have gone sailing in the air when her gaze locked on him."
